Juvederm Volbella® is an exciting new treatment for patients who want to soften the appearance of vertical lines around the mouth, also known as smoker’s lines or lipstick lines. Volbella can also be used for lip rejuvenation, subtly enhancing the lip, creating a soft, hydrated look.
Volbella is an injectable, hyaluronic acid (HA) filler used to soften the appearance of perioral lines (aka smoker’s lines or lipstick lines) and subtly enhance the lip to create a soft, defined hydrated look. Remember the old collagen fillers? In some ways it is similar. Volbella is a specially formulated filler, blended with different molecular weights of HA that makes this filler a smooth, soft gel specifically formulated for this delicate area. This special formulation helps reduce the post-procedure swelling that typically accompanies lip treatments. So, you can have your lips done this afternoon and enjoy a night out with no embarrassing downtime!
Since it has been a while since we have had a great product for lines around the mouth, we are beyond excited! We hear about this nemesis area from our patients all the time. These pesky little lines, aka smoker’s lines, are caused by several factors:
- Pursing the lips together
- Drinking through straws
We also know these lines are in a delicate area, tough to get rid of and difficult to treat. Ordinary dermal fillers aren’t ideal for treating these lines because the composition of the filler is too thick. Volbella is much smoother with a thinner consistency and when injected vertically into the smoker’s lines helps to smooth and soften their appearance.
Volbella can also be used for the patient who wants to enhance their lip subtly but doesn’t require much structure. Since this product is a smoother gel than Juvederm Ultra® or Ultra Plus it does not provide the same benefits. Where Juvederm Ultra® or Ultra Plus adds structure and volume, Volbella does not provide structure, but provides subtle volume and hydration. Overall, Volbella makes the lips look plump, moisturized and healthy when injected into the lip.
Another way Volbella can be used is tear troughs. Tear troughs are not just on cry babies! It is the depression radiating down from the inner eye causing a curve underneath the eye. The tear trough area is even more delicate than the perioral area. Volbella is perfect for filling in deficits under the eyes to create a more refreshed, younger appearance.
